Thanks for the input. So many decisions, lol. Maybe I could cut down to only one female Anthias, and the get a trio of Schooling Bannerfish. Hmmm.

I'm gonna throw another fish into the mix. Lol. How about a trio of wanatabe Angels? They are reef safe.

Are these them? Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Watanabei Angelfish, Male


Great suggestion! It says under care that they are difficult though. I really don't like the word, .

Thanks for posting!

I probably should say that he only feeds garlic soaked mysis and omega 3 seaweed flakes

Do you guys think my QT is still cycled? I had the Pearl Eye Clarkii Clownfish in it for a while in hypo. I also had moved over some filter pads from the 34g and some sand.

The tank has been empty since 5/04. I also have these rock branches in my 55g that I could move over to help with bacteria once I get some fish.

Do you all think it would be a poor decision to buy fish from an LFS or make an order from LiveAquaria?

Thanks, and sorry if this post seems a little choppy, lol. My excuse is that it is the morning.

Only one way to find out for sure. Dose some ammonia.

I have a bit of a dilemma here, LOL.

So today is the last day my LFS is running their Memorial Day Weekend sale, and my dad said that he would take me there today. This place is an hour away, so I don't go there that often.

Since I will be headed there today, I can't dose ammonia and then get fish. I was thinking of adding things from my 34g and 55g to the QT, and then hoping the tank would be okay with the pads/sand/pipe that is already in there. Then, just to be safe I could test daily to be certain the tank is cycled.

Thoughts?


Thanks, you guys are fantastic!
